Tom Lehrer videos!!!

Elisabeth emailed me a few days ago with links to a 13-minute Tom Lehrer video, which includes several songs I'd never heard before, and an animated version of "The Elements". Tom Lehrer was a major deformative influence on my life and I love seeing footage of him.

IMDB.com has a number of interesting facts about him, including some great quotes such as the following:
The nature of forbidden words has certainly changed. For example, when I was in college, there were certain words you couldn't say in front of a girl. Now you can say them, but you can't say 'girl.'
